From TheTea

Origin: Shui Lian Dong, Zhengyan Protected Area, Wuyishan, Fujian, China.

Vintage: May 2021

Tea Varietal: Rou Gui (cinnamon/cassia flower)

Age of tea trees: around 30 year old.

Excellent yancha from very famous terroir Shui Lian Dong (水帘洞) in the heart of Wuyi Mountain.

Amazing medium roasted Rou Gui has just arrived after the time of skillful roasting. Tea was roasted 4 times during the spring, summer and autumn. It was ready to be ordered in late November. We ordered few kilos from our friend and farmer.

Very fruity yancha with pleasantly clean liquor. 2021 harvest brings the tea with very sweet honey like flavor with powerful fruitiness you can smell in whole room when you brewing this tea!

Rou gui, and yancha in general, is just not my favourite flavour profile. This tea is no exception. Nevertheless, I would still like to drink it on particular occassions.

It is a strong tea that’s very mineral as expected. Aroma is calming and tender, mostly sweet and woody. The tea also taste like that, coupled with metallic bitterness, and savoury notes of almonds and seafood. The aftertaste is particularly strong and long-lasting. It gives a warming spicy note of cinnamon, which this cultival is famous for. The cha qi is a bit jittery and disorienting, but not unpleasant in the end.
